  • The weather of Daikan-mine is wrapped in fog in an instant and into a pure white world. On this day, we visited the Okanmine parking lot one after another, including tourist buses and riders on their proud bikes. If the weather is good, it is the best location where you can see the whole view of Mt. Aso, but please note that the weather of the mountain changes quickly.

  • It was fine on Saturday, the end of May. It was too beautiful. It was a really pleasant place. It's the best driving spot for people touring by car or motorcycle. The parking lot was also full. The shop was very good, and the ice cream was delicious. It is a good slope and length to the top of The Large Peak, and it is hard if it is not a healthy leg. You should go while you are healthy!
